Windshield air cowling removed for inspection, been at least 5 years since the last time I was in there.
Air intake now cleaner, less dirt, no critters found !
They are bad due to being in channel and put extra pressure on the window and motor
trust me I have seen it many times
AND I AM POSITIVE ON THAT LOL
I got these brackets of Amazon for much less, worth a look. Not steiger brand.Taped up my left Rear window glass as I suddenly experienced the dreaded "Window Regulator" issue that causes the window to drop down!
After 20 years of not having this problem, I always wondered how come I was spared!
I think that it was probably shaken by hitting a large pothole....those rear windows seldom get operated!
I have downloaded the Steiger Performance instructions on how to fit their Kit and will get onto their website to see if they can ship me the Metal Bracket to replace my broken Plastic Bracket! This could take a while for it to arrive here in South Africa but there is no hurry...my rear seats seldom get occupied!
But never a KJ so moot pointI am about to find out with my kj
I've had them on a chevy s-10 and 1500, ram 1500, nissan frontier and two of my mom's toyotas and other family members with great success.
Like a stiff new leather, I do a break in. I heat up the window rubber before initial install, hand assist the window seating a few times, leave them closed for at least a couple days in the florida sun or heat gun again.
But the two jeeps i've owned before were manual windows, and I've never owned a vehicle with such problematic power windows (based on my reading here), so time will tell how rough this will be lol!
WHEN Lifted , wheels 7 inch wide and 4 inch backspacing , then replace wheel bearing/hubsinstalled wheels with quite an offset couple of months ago.
it already wore out the Moog wheel hub (which was installed last year).
are KK and KJ hubs the same? i saw there are a lot more KK options...
and does anyone has a recommendation for hubs manufacturer? i'm kinda disappointed in Moog...
I didn't see much steering, your first comment to me was their product is terrible.But never a KJ so moot point
I just love it when you try to steer someone in the right direction after working/ owning KJs for almost 20 years , been on several forums, worked on the windows of several who had installed in channels and then someone disagrees without any knowledge at all
This is suppose to be a forum to share and help newbies etc on various issues
But go ahead and waste money, its not coming out of my pocket, you'll know in 5-6 months or so LMAO
I've had those on my Jeep since about 2014 and they are doing fine for me.
The gas mileage is deffinately better, the engine no longer revs going up a small hill, and i deffinately have power back. Well worth it!Swell. Now I am going to HAVE to go ahead and do this.
Keep us posted as you get it broken in. I have been putting this off too long.
